  • 1.5 cups Chopped Mango scant ( I used one ripe mango)
  • 3/4 cup Sugar
  • 3/4 cup Water
  • 2.5 tsps Orange Zest
  • 1 tbsp Lemon Juice
  • 1/4 tsp Salt


Prep - Work

  • Extract the lemon/lime juice and set aside 1 tbsp of juice.
  • Zest any citrus fruit and set aside 2.5 tsps.
  • Wash and peel the mango skin and chop them into small pieces.


  • In a heavy bottom pan or bowl, add the chopped mango pieces.
  • To add the sugar, water, lemon juice and the orange zest.
  • Mix this nicely and cook this mango mix over medium heat.
  • Cook until the mango is soft and until the water reduces to half. It took me about 10 minutes. Do not overcook, as sugar might crystallize.
  • Let this mix cool and blend into a smooth paste.
  • Store this in an airtight container or jam jar.
  • That's it. Jam is ready. Serve it with bread or bagel or just eat as it is. ;-)


I used one ripe Mexican mango variety. You can use any mango variety for this recipe.
I had about 1.5 cups of mango and used half of its measure for sugar. But adjust the sugar as per the mango sweetness.
I did not use any other flavoring condiments like cardamom, saffron, rose syrup. You can add these as per your preference or keep the jam plain without any additional seasoning.
Do not overcook, as sugar might crystallize.
